In Breda‘s historic centre, the municipality has started to daylight the once buried river Mark and make it navigable again. Beyond being navigable, citizens and local politicians also wanted it a much greener space, but space is scarce in the inner centre, and the quay walls go vertical. With the GreenQuays project, the city tests now an innovative nature-inclusive design of the quay walls. The quays are currently constructed and will be finished by mid-2023. From different project partner’s perspective, this Zoom in looks into:
What are nature-inclusive quay (NIQ) walls compared to conventional green walls?
What are the benefits and what are specific challenges and the solutions to build them?
What are other positive side effects?
Where and how can the NIQ technology be used beyond GreenQuays?
